Cult of Chucky, which released a montage-like teaser trailer a few days ago, is now officially underway in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The seventh installment of the Child’s Play franchise is being helmed by Don Mancini, who also directed both Seed and Curse of Chucky.

The official synopsis for Cult of Chucky is as follows:
“Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”

Horror legend Brad Dourif is confirmed to be providing the voice of Chucky once more, while his daughter, Fiona, is reprising her role from Curse. Other returning actors include Summer H. Howell from Curse, Jennifer Tilly from Bride and Seed, and Alex Vincent, who will be reprising his role as Andy Barclay from the first two Child’s Play films. In addition to Universal Home Entertainment sharing a few pieces of early promo art, the cast and crew are already sharing fun set photos, which you can find throughout this article.
Cult of Chucky will be released in an unrated version on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD this fall! Are you as excited as we are? Which character are you most excited to see? Let us know in the comments!
